Capacitor ? Is 5/40 MFD same as 40/5 MFD

I have Lennox air conditioner/heat pak, and it was blowing uncooled air today. I had an capacitor from my previous unit, and swapped it in, and it works. But the numbers are listed in reverse order ... 40/5 MFD vs 5/40 MFD. Is this just the way the manufacturer lists the value, or are these values actually different?
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forums.

It's a dual capacitor. One section is 40mfd and one is 5mfd. The order of listing is unimportant.

Thank you! ... figured it would be good to check before ordering a spare, and running an incorrect value.
